57 Years Later, This Couple is #Goals in Real Life

It doesn’t get any better than this. As soon as we saw this over on FabFitFun, we knew we had to share. This couple, married for 57 years, chose to celebrate their anniversary with a “Notebook” inspired shoot and it. is. everything — reminding us of the power of commitment and the beauty of love. No words are necessary when looking at the way they still look at each other. We hope this brightens your day like it did ours.

From photographer Stacy Welch-Christ:

I do most of everything I do, because of the Legacy of Love that I was left by my grandmothers. That’s why I named my business after them. I think this shoot, for me, was the exact reason why I started taking photos. It’s about those moments that most people don’t think mean anything right then and then one day they realize just how special they were. This was one of those times. I thought they would look back on these years from now and their family would have something special. Never did we imagine that we would have a viral shoot with the whole world responding. It’s been a tremendous blessing to see and hear the response. It gives me faith that our world still loves goodness.
